I own a OMEN GT12-1179  PC and want to upgrade the HDD with additional SSD.  The PC has a large video card installed and I am unable to visualize what is below it.  A diagram showing the motherboard and it's components woud be useful.

I found a picture of that motherboard and a listing.

Removing the black cover marked SSD2 should reveal a M.2 SSD slot.  Assuming it is not occupied, it will take SSD card

" upgrade the HDD with additional SSD "
you normally only have an m2 ssd, not an hdd?
